MAY 19, 2021
Vancouver, B.C. (May 19, 2021) – You are invited to an online concert on May 28, 2021 at 7:00-8:30 p.m. in celebration of Asian Heritage Month. Staged by Poly Culture North America, a Richmond, B.C.- based company, The Oriental Voice concert captures classic, nostalgic, and diverse themes.
Presented in both English and Chinese, the show on May 28 can be seen on eight major social media platforms around the world: YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Kwai, YangShiPin, Weibo, and WeChat Live Streaming. The concert features international and Canadian performers with orchestral music, vocal music, opera, and dance.
Highlights include the performance by Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra and the collaboration between Haida activist and artist Guujaaw and Kichwa musician Edgar Muenala and Inner Mongolian musician Uudam.
In view of the rise in anti-Asian sentiments during the COVID-19 pandemic, Poly Culture believes it is important to create intercultural understanding through music and art. The virtual concert is the finale of the series of free performances by Poly Culture this Vancouver Asian Heritage Month.
You can sit back and enjoy the online concert, along with an “East meets West” gift box delivered to your home or office. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not done so.
